This charming cartoon from Denis van Waerebeke breaks down the problem of global food distribution imbalances in easy-to-understand terms with a pleasing design and a Douglas Adams-tinged voiceover.

To boil it down, the food choices you as an individual make have a real impact on the health and economic situation of people halfway around the world. The first step to fixing the problem is to look at what’s on your plate and make responsible and informed choices.
